He Oranga Hapori: A model for raising Maori ... - Te Puni Kokiri

ResultsThe design of this model for the measurement of Mäori community wellbeing took place beforethe case study was planned. This offered the opportunity to also provide a worked exampledemonstrating what might be produced using the model. The following case study provides ameans for comparison.Accounting adjustments made to our growth indicatorAppendix 3 contains a worked example of how non-financial accounting adjustments to agrowth indicator can be made. The worksheet is reasonably easy to understand. At the top of theworksheet the growth indicator for a given measurement period like one year is entered. This isreferred to as the growth score. The growth score reveals the size of growth during the last year,but not the quality of the growth. To calculate the growth quality score it is necessary to gathergrowth quality score data for the remainder of the worksheet.The growth quality data would best be gathered with the assistance of local communitymembers scoring themselves in terms of how they performed over the last year. Thus, the growthquality score would represent an affirmation by the community of how it feels it did in termsof the expression of kaupapa and tikanga associated with this growth score. In this workedexample, the tikanga included in the growth quality calculation have been taken from Table 3.These performance measures would be chosen by the community concerned.Scoring the growth quality section of the growth score worksheet can occur by using thefollowing score strategy.Table 4 - The growth quality score strategy-1 Growth had an unwanted influence on the expression of this tikanga0 Growth did not influence the expression of this tikanga1 Growth had an enhancing influence on the expression of this tikangaIn scoring each of the growth quality tikanga shown in Appendix 3 answers are sought to thequestion “how did the growth that occurred influence the expression of this particular tikanga?”The answer lies within one of three possible score options. A score of zero indicates that thegrowth did not influence this expression of this tikanga. It is also possible to score an enhancing(i.e. 1) and unwanted (i.e. -1) influence score. This question and answer process needs to becompleted for each of the tikanga listed in the Appendix 2 worksheet.Table 5 - The growth quality score results from the growth worksheet (Appendix 3)Total growth score 85Total growth quality score 2Genuine progress indicator growth score 87Potential GPI indicator growth score 113In Table 5, the total growth score is simply the measurement of growth for the year unadjustedfor growth quality. The total growth quality score of 2 indicates that the growth score of 85positively influenced the expression of other tikanga with a net quality score of 2. The netquality score of 2 is arrived at by adding together all of the individual quality scores. This is a netscore because all total negative scores and total positive scores are added together.21
